When sudden tragedy strikes the family in the days before Christmas, David and Kelly's marriage is brought to its breaking point and David's desire for retribution leads him into uncharted moral territory with the question: what can we forgive?Written by
This is the most honest movie out there about the topic of grief - and it is an amazing piece of art because of this. You will be riveted by the depth of human emotion in this movie - and astounded that it was shot in less than 2 weeks on a shoestring budget. The director is also the primary actor. Wow! This movie is flawless. There is great direction, wonderful acting, and perfect production values, but what makes this film incredible is how it is able to draw the audience into the honest and real emotional sides to grieving. Capturing emotion is difficult in a movie and grief is not an easy topic - but it is a feeling all humans grapple with at least a few times in their lives. Instead of glossing over this feeling, this film embraces grief - and in so doing, you will be transported deep into your own heart. Every scene is realistic and the holiday party scene is worth the entire film. Bravo!
